After a big fight, Carrie and Aidan spend three days without talking to each other, until she breaks and apologizes first.

Charlotte absolutely basks in the glow of her engagement to Harry. Her ring is enormous (and patterned after the one given by Richard Burton to Elizabeth Taylor), and all seems well. All, that is, except for the nagging feeling that somehow this second marriage will be somewhat less special than her first. She tells the girls that this wedding will be far less elaborate than the last, releasing them from bridesmaid duties. Charlotte's attitude changes after running into a enthusiastic barhopping bridal party, rejuvenating her spirits and causing her to re-enl

Upset with the idea of having to move out because her building is going co-op, Carrie faces an even bigger problem: Aidan suggested that they moved in together after he bought both Carrie's and the next door apartment to make one big place for them. It's a big step that needs some thinking time, which is not helped when Carrie accidentally discovers an engagement ring among Aidan's stuff. This makes her question if Aidan is really "the one" and if she is ready for it. But then again, are we ever ready? An unexpected bump into Big doesn't really help her, specially when the ring she saw has nothing to do with her โ€“ nevermind that it was Miranda who helped him pick it out. Finally, when she's not expecting, Aidan knees and pops the question. The right timing, the right place โ€“ and most important, the right ring โ€“ make Carrie say yes. Meanwhile, Miranda faces a proposal too, after she tells Steve she's pregnant with his child. But different from Carrie, Miranda is definitely not ready for

I Love it!!!!

It was a brilliant series. Didn't think I would enjoy it so much. Had watched the series in the past but occasionally. Not one of the shows that should be binged. Acting performances were really sharp especially in the last season and the subsequent first movie. Truly deserved to be such an iconic show.

of course the show has its problems, after all we're watching the life of 4 white straight girls. but it was kind of comfortable to watch and also to make fun of the heterosexual life/world! carrie bradshaw is so annoying

I mean it's just hands down one of the best shows ever made!! If you don't agree, I'm sorry that you suck at life.

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
